Just in time for Fall/Winter vigilantism, Forever 21 has launched the Bats and Cats Collection of apparel, accessories and cosmetics, featuring the iconic motifs of Batman and Catwoman. After the success of previous licensed collections showcasing the designs of Hello Kitty/Sanrio and Minnie Mouse, the Bats and Cats line is the first comic-centric collection that Forever 21 has released. Although Forever 21 has occasionally carried DC and Marvel apparel (primarily graphic tees), this collection features a wider variety of merchandise, including Bat-emblem leggings, Catwoman sweaters, and purses covered in gold bat-shaped studs, and more.
Last Thursday, I came down with a bad cold and thought that the Bats & Cats Collection was just a fever dream. I woke up the following morning with a shipping confirmation in my inbox and a slight dent in my checking account.
I’ll post a review/unboxing of the items that I ordered once my shipment arrives~!

Green Lantern gloves, by Karl Lagerfeld [Colette x DC Comics’ 75th Anniversary Collection]
These rhinestone-adorned fingerless gloves are a loose, high-end interpretation of Green Lantern’s power ring. This look could easily be replicated with a little DIY with some rhinestones and a pair of pleather wrist-length gloves.
In collaboration with Lucasfilm, Australian fashion brand Black Milk Clothing has released the latest installment of its Star Wars Collection today (the previous installments can be seen here). Black Milk Clothing’s latest Star Wars designs include a trompe-l’oeil Darth Vader swimsuit, spandex speckled with AT-ATs, and a swimsuit featuring a light saber battle between Luke and Darth Vader. In addition to the new releases, Black Milk Clothing has also lowered their prices on their entire Star Wars collection, as well as offering free international shipping this month.

MAC Cosmetics will be launching their Archie Comics collection just in time for Valentine’s Day, featuring makeup products inspired by Riverdale’s own Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge. Known for their critically acclaimed beauty products and collaborations with pop culture icons (including Hello Kitty, Barbie, and Wonder Woman), MAC Cosmetics’ Archie Comics products will feature exclusive new shades and special edition accessories. However, the most unique feature of this collection is that the products are evenly split (like Archie’s heart) to suit either the Girl-Next-Door (sweet candy shades of pink and peach) or the Sophisticated Fashionista (deep vixen tones of red and purple).
